and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure that we're helping small businesses and companies that are investing in the united states. that we take some of the money that we're saving as we wind down two wars, to rebuild america. and that we reduce our deficit in a balanced way that allows us to make critical investments. now, ultimately it will be up to the voters, to you, which path we should take. are we going to double down on the top down economic policies that helped get us into this mess? or do we embrace a new economic patriotism, that says america does best when the middle class does best? i'm looking forward to having that debate. >> governor romney, two minutes. >> thank you, jim. an honor to be with you and pleased to be with the president. i'm pleased to be at the university of denver, i appreciate the welcome and the presidential commission on these debates and congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i'm sure ythis is the most romantic place you could imagine, here wit

high. we both agree we've got to boost american energy production and it appears we've got some agreement that a marketplace to work has to have some regulation. i suspect that on social security we've got a somewhat similar position. >> you understand what he was trying do there? >> yeah, i do. >> i got a bit confused. >> i think you're right, wolf. and i think that is a disastrous approach. the truth of the matter is mitt romney right now is the head of a right-wing extremist party called the republican party. it wasn't always the case. that's what they are today. if the president cannot differentiate himself clearly from right-wing extremism, we've got a lot of problems as a nation and he's got problems as a candidate running for re-election. in terms of social security, it is absurd for the president to say that he and romney are coming down in the same way. social security today has a $2.7 trillion surplus. social security hasn't contributed one nickel to the deficit, can pay out benefits for the next 20 years. the president should be saying now what he said four years ago.
for energy or a number of the other things that he pointed -- the failure of dodd-frank, and so the president had a record to defend this time, but one, do not underestimate the president of the united states. he will come back strong. i think mitt has to be prepared for that. and also, as you mentioned, these job numbers will give him a bit or something of a boost today. >> we've got the vp debate coming up. you said about joe biden he's the gift that keeps on giving. are you hoping that he's going to be giving a sprinkling of presents back to you guys? >> i don't know but i hope he repeats this latest one, where the middle class america has been buried for the last four years. right, joe. in fact, you might use that in your opening statement. by the way, personally, i've got to tell you something, piers. personally, joe biden and i have been friends for many, many years. i enjoy his company. he's a very good guy, personally, so it's not as if i -- but honest to god, he still is a heartbeat away from the presidency and when some of the things he says, you know, you're slack-jawed. but i thin

, on the campaign trail, much more energy than he had in the actual debate. 67 million people watched that debate and and the president's performance was judged very lacking. dana mill bank for "the washington post" said this. obama was out of practice, unprepared to be challenged. the white house had supposed that he was reallying on such venues, obama's argument skills atrophied. here is eugene robinson. it was not a disaster from obama's point of view but a bad might and missed opportunity. even if the debate had been no better an draw, obama could have spent the rest of the campaign running out the clock. now romney and the republicans have a new spring in their step. they believe they can win. what was the impact, do you think, of that debate? >> i think the limited polling has been done, that the impact has been very, very limited. the -- the fact is that this president came out and he laid out very carefully his plan for the future. and what he has done. and, again, mr. -- you talked about etch a sketch. we don't know what mr. romney is about. on one hand he talked for the last 18 is month

the president is firm on energy quality or they can stay on their parent's health insurance plan until the age 26. those are the big differences between 2008 and now, and that's what we're hearing all over the country no matter where we go, and it's certainly been inspiring for those of us who have the chance to go to all these states on behalf of the president. >> kal, how do you make an impact here? i mean, people sometimes -- do they look at you and see the movies and think stoner? i mean, how did you get involved in politics? >> it's a very good question. i ask myself that a lot. i am politically an independent. i love the fact that we've got the chance to make all those crazy movies. i talk about this a lot. in 2007 i had a bunch of friends who were really struggling. i had a buddy who i talk about from time to time who i had to make this crazy decision whether he was going to get eyeglasses to see the board or buy his textbooks one semester in community college. i know folks that were discharged under the don't ask, don't tell policy. met tons of young people that didn't have access to h
